We The Kings - Sunshine State of Mind

Sunday, July 10, 2011 · Posted in

WE THE KINGS just released their third studio album 'Sunshine State Of Mind' on July 12th.
Sunshine State of Mind is more about summer love.  All the songs are lovestruck and summer-lovey. This is very much a different band to the one who took us to 'Skyway Avenue' and pleaded with us to 'Stay Young'. 

Here are the list of their track on Sunshine State of Mind :
01) Friday is Forever
02) Say You Like Me
03) Every Single Dollar
04) The View From Here
05) The Secret to New York
06) Sleep With Me
07) Over You
08) Kiss Me Last
09) Somebody to Call My Own
10) You and Only You

With the opening two tracks both beginning with acoustic guitar, it also confirms that all notions of We The Kings being a pop-punk band have been dispensed with.

The catchiest chorus on the record, 'Say You Like Me' contains a light, airy vibe that hints at the type of reggae-tinged pop. It got a beachy, summer playlist feel to it.

We The Kings' 'Smile Kid' was sure a sign of the quartet's decline, even that album was able to satisfy by consistently delivering upbeat hooks and catchy choruses. But 'Sunshine State of Mind' has no such luck however, with very little sticking in the mind at all. But after all, Travis Clark still have the effortless charming vocals. It makes this album is still worth to have for. What do you think ?
